Question about Harley Davidson VRSCDX Night Rod Special Motorcycles

1 Answer

Thanx! I have a 2008 nightrod special. I recently replaced the battery.I now smell fuel and notice wetness along my motor casing.I am assuming it is running from the carb area.Is it possible I overlooked something when re-installing the airbox? I tried to pay close attention to the re-installation of the box tubes underneath and inside the box.

Yz125 2005 not get fire

Its quite a brief description of issue but any way I assume it is not starting???

You need 3 things to have a running motor 1 Spark at plug test this by removing plug connecting it back to the plug lead lay it on motor and kick bike over to see or not the spark, 2 fuel getting through to spark plug... test this by smelling and feeling the spark plug immediately after kicking it over should be wet and strong fuel smelling... 3 compression there are special tools for this but a simple back yard test is remove spark plug put your finger or thumb over the hole the plug came out of and gently kick bike over if your finger is not forced off instantly and you can resist some or most of the pressure when kicking it over then you have nowhere near enough compression...

This at least will give you diagnosis to know what to investigate further to get the beast to fire... Good luck

Motor overheats and stops. Battery loses half of power in 100 yards. Have sought repairs for unit since 2008 will not replace parts.

Hi. Sounds a bit like the motor has a short circuit in the armature. How old is the machine? How old are the batteries?
Remove one or both of the brushes, and try to smell the inside of the motor. A burnt out motor will have a strong smell of burnt varnish.
Is the machine still under warranty?
Another cause could be a seized or binding brake assembly. With the free-wheel lever released, can you easily push the machine along the ground?
Good luck. Neil.

Charging Battery

Probably your battery is a goner. Check it for voltage and apply a load test meter (heating coil loading, buy one at Harbor Freight for under 20 bucks) If it shows bad after 2 ten second tests buy a battery.

Nightrod stops firing a few seconds after starting

Probably fuel system has trash in it, The oil light comes on after engine dies would be right as the ignition is still on and no oil pressure.Fuel stabilizer may have caused trash to break free and stop up the system.Also vacuume to fuel shutoff could be off or stopped up too.

Gasoline smell fom volvo s60,no leaks noticed

In may be the fuel pump. Check recalls on your year make and model. My girlfriend has a 2004 S60 which had the same problem. I changed the fuel filter at first assuming that that was the problem but the smell persisted. I then took it to the volvo dealership and had them replace it for free. The only bad thing is that they may keep it for a few days to do it.
